About Beaux Freres 2016 Pinot Noir, The Upper Terrace, Ribbon Ridge

Perhaps the most collectible Pinot Noir in America, Beaux Freres has set a standard that few can match. This is one of their strictly allocated single vineyard offerings. Wine Spectator scored this Upper Terrace bottling 96 points saying "A seductive wine that combines structure with harmony and a silky texture. Vivid black raspberry, rose petal and mocha espresso flavors build richness and dance on the long finish. Drink now through 2025.

and the Wine Advocate also scored it 96 saying "The Upper Terrace Vineyard was planted in 2000. Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir The Upper Terrace has a classic nose of warm red cherries and cranberries, sliced blueberries and strawberry jam with notes of cola, cardamom, oolong tea leaves and blue flowers—the nose gives up changing earth, fruit and savory layers every time I go back for another smell. Light to medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with warm, luscious strawberry and raspberry jam notes with an integrated vein of baking spice and potpourri, framed by very finely grained tannins and juicy, mouthwatering acidity, finishing epically long and spicy. Yes, yes, yes!"
